19 June 2019

Using the microwave for this dish makes it super quick and keeps all the goodness in the veggies.

2 salmon fillets
1 large leek, washed and sliced
70g fresh French beans
50g frozen peas
4 heaped tbsp low fat crème fraîche,
plus 2 extra tbsp to serve
1 tbsp chopped fresh tarragon
Black Pepper
Pinch LoSalt


1. Start by preparing 2 large squares of greaseproof paper measuring approx 40cm each side. Place these on a microwavable plate.
2. Mix the crème fraîche with the chopped tarragon and a sprinkling of freshly ground black pepper and a pinch of LoSalt in a bowl and set aside.
3. Pop a fillet of salmon in the middle of each sheet and top with the leeks, French beans and peas.
4. Now dollop 2 tablespoons of low fat crème fraîche mixture on top.
5. Pull up the sides of the paper to make a parcel, twisting it at the top. Make sure you leave air circulation space inside.
6. Microwave on full power for 5 minutes and leave to stand for 5 minutes before serving with an extra dollop of crème fraîche.
7. If you don't have a microwave you can wrap in foil instead of baking paper and bake in the oven for 20 minutes at 180˚C. Do not use foil in the microwave.
